Reading Green

Dutch design magazine designboom is back with a rocking chair that powers its own reading light. Says the designer, Rochus Jacob, “Advanced nano-dynamo technology which is built in to the skids of the chair and more efficient light sources such as the newly developed OLED generation makes it possible to build a rocking chair with a reading lamp running on electricity generated from the rocking motion. During daylight the energy gets stored in a battery pack.”
